It’s the based place with the helpful hardware folks. Don’t judge, but I didn’t grow up with a super extensive knowledge of hardware, tools, basic repairs, etc. Since buying a condo, I had to learn some of it out of necessity; however, I quickly found it relaxing in an odd way.
I may have a problem or something I’m looking to do, but often I’m not sure where to start or how to best go about it. But if I go to my nearby ACE and explain my problem/what I’m looking to do, they always seem to know the answer without skipping a beat. They’ll show me over to everything I need, explain what everything does, give pointers on how to do it.
Like Hank Hill IRL. And of course, over time you start to build a working knowledge of these things. So yeah, I absolutely love my ACE, and they live up to their slogan 110%.
